UPDATE: This story has been updated to reflect that retired firefighter Ronnie Martinez has dropped out of the race for the District 5 Council seat and Cynthia Borrego has entered the race for that same seat.
Seeking re-election are District 1 Councilor Ken Sanchez, District 3 Councilor Klarissa Peña, District 7 Councilor Diane Gibson and District 9 Councilor Don Harris. In District 5, City Councilor Dan Lewis has opted to launch a mayoral run, leaving no incumbent in that race.
And while mayoral candidates have already turned in their nominating petitions, City Council candidates only began collecting signatures this month. In order to qualify for the ballot, each council candidate is required to gather 500 signatures by June 28 from registered voters residing in the district each seeks to represent.
